Dixie Be Damned: 300 Years of Insurrection in the American South by Neal Shirley & Saralee Stafford

20.00

Dixie Be Damned: 300 Years of Insurrection in the American South by Neal Shirley & Saralee Stafford, looks at seven “hidden” insurrectionary episodes in Southern history to demonstrate the region’s long arc of revolt, from slave rebellions to labor battles, prison uprisings, urban riots, race & gender discrimination- related uprisings & more. As the authors put it, this book “is an experiment in reading and writing history from two anarchists who grew up in the region,” and they focus on the moments and aspects of these particular rebellions and uprisings that they found to be the most inspiring, instead of trying to be completely comprehensive. The result is an exciting and interesting storytelling of these forgotten moments in history. They also “demonstrate the direct connection between the struggles against slavery and plantation society of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries with the street battles and prison riots of the twenty-first.”
